    Carl Fischer Cornet

    Hi all.
    I just got this cornet and don't know much about it. It has a Carl Fischer (Boston, Mass) engraving on the bell and nothing more.
    I had never played a cornet before and I just loved it!
    How much do you think is the value of it? I didn't pay for it yet. Is it a good horn? I like it :)
    The serial number is 158727
    Here are some pics:

    It is definitely a stencil. Fischer stopped making/importing horns in 1923. Then they bought York Instruments. This looks pretty modern so I would guess it's made by York. It might be a variation of the Senator by York, but yours has no 3rd slide spit valve! So... Oldlou may be of some assistance

    Don't be afraid to try something different. The Ark was built by an amateur and the Titanic was built by a group of experienced engineers.

    Hum. Looking at horn-u-copia for York cornets, it seems very similar to this one. But that page says it's a custom model, it doesn't help.

    The York Custom cornet was either manufactured by the Carl Fischer sub line of York or Blessing, both companies owned at that time by C.F.. In either case it was a more than decent little horn. If the price is to your liking and financial ability, buy it.

    Yes, it looks very similar to the blessing cornets on horn-u-copia. If it follows the blessing serial number, it's a 1968 cornet. Actually it doesn't matter, I like the horn and I'll keep it. Just want to know more about it :)
    I'll trade it on my conn director that I can't play :)

    Thank you all!
